Molière's 1670 his play, The Bourgeois Gentleman, presented before the
court of Louis XIV, mocked a foolish, social climbing merchant. In his
effort to remake himself, the merchant takes lessons to help him pass as
an aristocrat. In a basic lesson on language, he is both surprised and
delighted to learn he had been speaking prose all his life without
knowing it. Almost three and a half centuries later, much of the world
finds itself speaking a different language economics also without
full awareness.
